Tech / University College of London Build world's Fastest Internet that can download entire Netflix in 1 Second

The Gazette. A University College London (UCL) has set a new world record for the fastest internet in the world. The recently developed technology can download at a speed of 178 Terabits (TB) per second which is equivalent to 1,78,000 Gbps.

The previous record for the fastest internet in the world belonged to experts at Japan’s National Institute for Communications Technology with a speed of 172 Terabits per second.
To get an idea about what 178 Terabits per second can do, with this speed one can download the entire Netflix library in less than one second. It would also take less than an hour to download the data that was combined to make the world’s first image of a black hole. The data to achieve this feat was shipped to an MIT observatory, stored on half a ton of hard drives.
Lead author Dr. Galdino, a lecturer at UCL and a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow, believes that internet traffic has increased manifold due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. He said, “But independent of the COVID-19 crisis, internet traffic has increased exponentially over the last 10 years, and this whole growth in data demand is related to the cost per bit going down.”
‘The development of new technologies is crucial to maintaining this trend towards lower costs while meeting future data rate demands that will continue to increase, with as yet unthought-of applications that will transform people’s lives,’ Galdino added.
